you can definitely tell this was written in the 80's during the war on drugs. This is a classic.

I've loved this story and these characters forever.

Well this sure was an 80s comic. It's not particularly well written, the art doesn't stand out, there's some weird lettering and goofy decisions all around, but the mythology of Cloak and Dagger is at least given some ground work. I'd love to see it picked up and retooled in a modern comic series, but that's a dream I'll probably have to hold on to for a long time.

This run has not aged well, but it's short and mostly origin, so if you have an interest in these characters, there's really not muc

A serviceable story that has not aged well in the least. It reads like a checklist for a socially aware comic of the 1980s, which is exactly what it is. Some interesting art choices here and there, but from start to finish, it's kind of a bad cop movie from the 80s.

I cannot help but say it: I ADORE this comic. All those years spent reading the American comic book … everything from Stan Lee to Carl Barks to EC to Eisner to Miller to Gerber … and Bill Mantlo's Cloak and Dagger comes out on top?

Who'da thunk it?! In my youth, I never rated Mantlo highly. But age has given me insight and this is Mantlo at his very best. I say more about this astonishing comic book here …
I usually pick up old comics I was fond of in my youth and expect them to be painful through the filter of adult eyes. This one I found held up pretty well. The art and storytelling reminded me again and again that I was reading an 80s comic. But I felt the story and the dynamic of Cloak & Dagger held up even today.

I first read these stories as a child and was excited to find this book at my local comic shop. The story is still engaging, and I will be looking for more.
